OK all of you adrenaline junkies, it's time to fire up your motorcycles and motorbikes, four-wheelers and side-by-sides and get ready to race.
The first race at RaceDay Park Mx is less than a month away. The park is located just six miles northeast of Poteau on Oklahoma State Highway 112.
Save the world, recycle.
God bless our troops and veterans.
Have a great weekend.
